Please read this! I need strings to come early next week. I did not announce this at rehearsal! See highlighted sections below for full info! AND: Please reply to this email to acknowledge that you received it! Oh, this is Julie Gardner, 435.723.8262, GJulieKay@gmail.com. Please contact me with any questions, or, as usual, with attendance issues.
A Huge Thank You to Amy Elmer and Cami Dilg for assisting in our rehearsal this morning. Along with Nada & Sarah Pehrson and me, we were able to split up for sectionals. Thank you, Thank you! You are all awesome. We were missing a few people, some I had heard from, some I hadn't! We hope you all come back next week! :)
Next Week, November 13th:
I meant to announce this at the end of rehearsal this morning, but I lost track of time and we ended rather abruptly: I need to have all Strings ready to rehearse next week on the 13th at 8:30am! Yes, that means everyone that plays violin, viola, cello, or bass! We have a lot to accomplish, and I feel strongly that the strings need to meet a half-hour early. So, next week, please be ready to play by 8:30. This means arrival time: 8:20!
I will be there by 8:10 to set up. Big smiles and giggles for anyone who comes early enough to help out!
Winds & Brass, please arrive by 8:50am, come quietly into the band room & set up your stuff, then warm up in the orchestra room so you are ready to rehearse by 9:00am! This will facilitate the best use of our time.
Does it sound like I'm a little worried about the upcoming concert? Well... I'm not worried, but I do think we need a longer rehearsal next week, so I'm asking for one! Thanks!
Remember, the Nov 20th concert is at 5pm. Please plan to be there by 4:30pm.
